Wittmeyer moderates panel at NYS Convenience Stores convention

May 20, 2014 |

Dr. Carol Wittmeyer, associate professor of management in St. Bonaventure University’s School of Business, served as moderator for a family business panel Carol Wittmeyerdiscussion at the New York State Association of Convenience Stores Trade Show and Convention.

Held May 15 at the Oncenter in Syracuse, the panel included Michael Newman, executive vice president of NOCO Inc.; Joseph Mirabito, CEO of Mirabito Energy Products; and Mark Byrne, executive vice president of Byrne Dairy and president of SonByrne Sales Inc.

“It was a pleasure to work with Mike and Joe, who are humble leaders of successful multi-generational family firms in our region,” Wittmeyer said. “They shared their stories related to the three success factors we know are critical to family business transitions: governing boards, strategic planning and family meetings.”

Also, Wittmeyer is serving as strategic planning consultant to the New York Family Business Center, a not-for-profit newly located at the Madden School at LeMoyne College. 

“It’s a real honor to work with Upstate family businesses and another Catholic institution committed to our partnership of serving families in business in Upstate New York,” she said. “Such partnerships help the many students on all of our campuses who look forward to running their own family firms.”

As part of her sabbatical, Wittmeyer will serve as a professor in residence at Ellicott Development in June.  She will work with Chairman Carl Paladino, ’68, to complete a case study of the enterprise they drafted with the late Patrick Paladino and Dr. John G. Watson, former dean of SBU’s School of Business.

She will attend meetings at the company to get current business experiences and offer management training for staff.
